"Conan the Adventurer" Season 1: By Crom, What a Disappointment!

by Ed Liuon August 15, 2011
It’s a pleasure to report that there is at least one Saturday morning cartoon out there that manages to capture the untamed, muscular sensibilities of Robert E. Howard’s famous barbarian swordsman, Conan. Unfortunately, that cartoon is Thundarr the Barbarian. Beside that one, 1992’s Conan the Adventurer is only the palest of shadows of Howard’s original, […]

The Road So Far - The Amazing World Of Gumball

by The Huntsmanon August 13, 2011
It feels like only yesterday that I first discovered The Amazing World Of Gumball, yet nearly two years have passed since then and I have watched every single episode since the premiere back in May.  At the time of this writing, exactly half of the first season’s episodes have aired.  I figured it was a […]

"Casshern Sins" Complete Series: Repenting Won't Save This Soul

by Lelouchon August 12, 2011
When FUNimation first started marketing Casshern Sins, I thought the series looked rather neat. The animation had a simple, charming feel while the humanoid robot premise reminded me of Cyborg 009, a series I nostalgically enjoyed. But as a story that depends largely on its characters, Casshern Sins falls short due to those characters’ inability […]

"The Smurfs: A Magical Smurf Adventure" Could Be a Lot Smurfing Better

by Ed Liuon August 1, 2011
The Smurfs: A Magical Smurf Adventure, which is being released to ride the PR push for the live-action/CGI Smurfs movie, provides a decent cross-section of the iconic 1980s cartoon. Despite its title, there is no single narrative or strong tie between any of the ten episodes provided across the 2 discs in the set, all […]

"ThunderCats": The Cat's Meow

by Maxie Zeuson July 29, 2011
Never judge a new series by its first episode, a certain television producer once cautioned me. Remember, the people making it are still feeling their way, trying to get the kinks worked out. It’s a newborn baby, and those things are always kind of ugly. Malicious soul that I am, I’m tempted to scrupulously adhere […]
